During some dives you may be lucky enough to encounter them ) and the Selvagens Islands.
The water temperature varies between 17ºC and 22ºC and the visibility between 10 and 25 meters.
It is recommended a 5mm suit in the high season, from June to October, and a 7mm suit in the low season, from November to May.
